lesson learned (contains references to vomiting)

I fed the dogs Red Snapper for dinner. It was the first time they had it and it went over great, they all loved it.

Until about 3 hours later... Then Rampage started puking it up. He puked the whole meal within 4 episodes. The first two looked alarmingly like the projectile vomiting which is a warning sign of a bowel obstruction (the last 2 were just normal horking pukes). He was laying on the floor in the living room and all of a sudden he made a *Gurp* noise and a chunk of fish flew out of his mouth and landed about 3 feet away. We were all pretty surprised, I think Rampage most of all!

So I was actually relieved when Apollo started puking up his Red Snapper too, although he wasn't as dramatic as Rampage. At least I knew it was the Snapper. I still don't know for sure if it just didn't sit well with them or it was 'off' but I'm guessing it didn't sit well because Icon and Foster were fine and so were Rampage and Apollo after getting it out of their stomachs. Apollo even tried to eat it again, but I figured that might not be the best idea so I stopped him.

I really want to add more seafood into the dog's diet, but I think that's the last time I'll feed Red Snapper.

  2. Yikes! Poor Polly & Rammy!!! haha... I think Snapper is definitely off the menu!

    I'm glad I read this as I also wanted to get more fish into my dogs diet... I might skip the snapper after the visual of poor Rammy's near-projectile... blah!
